Power Rankings: College Football Conferences

The SEC will be the group to beat this year. Alabama is always a powerhouse. R.I.P. Head Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant, the man who put Alabama on the map. Watch out for Arkansas, the surprise team of the conference!
Big Ten
Oldest Division I Athletic Conference. Currently at 12 schools, the Big Ten will expand to 14 in 2014 when Maryland and Rutgers become members.
Big 12
The Big 12 is mostly known for Texas and Oklahoma, but Baylor has been good lately. The last couple years this conference has been more evenly competitive, with the big two slipping lately.
We already know about Oregon and Stanford, who will compete for a national championship. But will this be the season that the conference returns to national dominance, or will they be top-heavy once again?
Where can you find more history than Florida State and The U?
Mountain West
High-scoring offenses and very fun games. The high school energy and atmosphere creates some memorable moments.
The Mid-American conference produced Kent State and Northern Illinois as the two top teams last year, and they will try to build on their success this season.
Conference USA
Conference USA is very weak in my opinion, except for East Carolina, who will rule that conference.
American Athletic
Boasting four bowl winners from last season, the conference-formerly-known-as-the-Big-East will look to disrupt the big boys and dent the top 25, led by Heisman candidate Teddy Bridgewater and his Louisville Cardinals.
Sun Belt
Established in 1976, the Sun Belt conference consists of 10 members. They will expand to 12 by 2015 when FBS powerhouses Appalachian State and Georgia Southern complete transition to Division I.
